I check in once in a while to see who is posting and what is going on in the Osprey world. So nice to see so many familiar names! Glad to see you all are still sharing, Dennis would be proud, and so am I.

||Hi Dave. So nice to see you. Recently someone I know bought a book written by Dennis Puleston about 1936. They did not have to pay an outrageous sum and not only was the copy good it was signed by the man himself.
Yes the influence of Dennis Puleston has spread far and wide.

Still a wonderful place with some wonderful people! I've learned so much here, and am so glad we still have this to share our Osprey tales!

||Good to hear from you Dave!
Tiger, the book is Dennis' account of his 6 year adventure at sea, called 'Blue Water Vagabond.' He left his hometown of Leigh, England with a friend in 1931, when he was 26 years of age. It is a wonderful account. It was republished in 2009.

||I bought a copy of that book a couple of years ago and I agree Nancy, it really is a great read.
As for this message board - it's worth its weight in gold and I too am glad that so many still use it.

||Nice to "see" you Dave. I have been lurking but not posting recently. Cheapest copy of that book I coud find at the moment is Â£20 for a paperback. It seems very rare.
